Help! Considering purchasing a CAT D2, I have two available to me - the first is a fully RESTORED 1951 Serial # 5U9xxx with a rope start pony motor, manual 6-way blade (Hyd. lift), & 90%+ undercarriage, but it's nearly 1800 miles away. The other machine looks like it just came in from plowing the back 40 acres,undercarriage looks to be about 50%, blade is a manual 8-way (Hyd. lift), engine is factory direct start, Serial # 5U16xxx , new batteries, Hyd. to the rear, BUT photo shows a bad oil leak on the rear of the engine (back half of engine is black with oil), & this machine is less than 300 miles away and $500. cheaper. Also, unknown how much is left of the clutches & brakes.
Whatever I purchase is going to be used on a remote mountain-top mining claim. I'm very strongly leaning towards the restored dozer even though shipping charges are going to be pricey.
